I'd like to pick up a couple of extra wall chargers for my 3g. What are the best options? I bought a cheapie on Ebay for my v1, and it worked fine, but it does not work for my 3g. Just wondering what everyone is doing on this issue. Thanks.

Why not just the Apple charger, might have to pay a little more, but you know its going to be your BEST bet. They look the nicest too!

I agree with smknSRT8 - I think an Apple charger is your best bet. I've read too many horror stories about cheap/off-brand chargers frying iPhones and I'd only trust a major brand charger (Griffin, iGo, etc.) or an Apple one with mine...

I know at my girlfriends house has a cheapo iPod charger, and I needed to charge my phone cause it was about to die. I put it on the "charger" for an hour or so, NOTHING happened. i grabbed it immediately cause i didn't want anything to happen to my precious iPhone. Since then I have been very skeptical on using products not by Apple for iPhone.

Here is what I found on the Apple site. Does this also come with the USB cord?

BTW, Smkn, what kind of SRT8 do you have? I've got the Charger SRT8.

10-4, I saw that but just wanted to make sure. Why the hell do they not take a picture of that? Pretty important piece.

I agree with you. And the description isn't so clear if it includes it unless you click the learn more.
